White House considers executive order, leaves Internet takeover a possibility

August 6, 2012 at 11:25 am

The White House has left open the possibility of enacting its Internet agenda via executive order after the failed effort to bring the Democrat-supported cybersecurity bill to a full vote in the Senate last week.

In response to a question from The Hill, a Washington, D.C. political newspaper, about whether President Obama was considering advancing his party’s cyber-plan through an executive order, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney didn’t rule out the possibility.

“In the wake of Congressional inaction and Republican stall tactics, unfortunately, we will continue to be hamstrung by outdated and inadequate statutory authorities that the legislation would have fixed,” he said via email.

    Communism is on the way to America. Well, it’s already here it just hasn’t reared it’s ugly head yet. It’s been here since November 2008.

      Thanks to Colonel Edward Mandel House, as pointed out in his book, Philip Dru, Administrator which he finished in 1911 and in which was laid out the plans for the U.S. becoming a Socialist government as dreamed by Karl Marx. House predicted the enactment of the graduated income tax, excess profits tax, unemployment insurance, social security and the federakl reserve.These plans were carried out by both the Wilson and FDR administrations. Wilson in 1913 and FDR in 1933. History has proven that on Dec.23, 1913, the Constitution ceased to be the governing covenant of the American people and our liberties were handed over to a small group of international bankers.Both the Bush administration and now the Obama administration has called for a new “living progressive” constitution. One that can be interpreted in any way they and the following administrations chose. remember what Bush said about the Constitution. It was just a G_D D–M piece of paper and Obama said it was outdated and didn’t apply in todays times. G. Edward Griffin: ” If America is to remain free, its citizens must become far more politically educated than they are at present.”

    application since he is an American Citizen?????? under the name Barry Soetoro.

    time there as well??????????was it a foreign passport??????????let’s see those.
    Who cares about Romney’s IRS returns. Obama has access to it, his little buddy works as
    head of the IRS.

    This puke is rapidly transforming the United States into a third world dictatorship. He must go before he drives us to civil war and bankruptcy.

    Search and read for connection on ‘Obama’s other communist connection’ … or Alice Palmer who helped set him up in politics and introduced him to all her friends in the party and New Party … maybe was founded by him. there is a video on Western Center for Journalism … a MUST view video

    There are many questions about Obama that remain unanswered adequately. His birth, his college days, his social security number, etc. But the bought and paid for media (by Soros) told us it was all just was all just ramblings of right wing extremists and unfortunately too many of the voting public bought that song and dance… Then you have the sector that were intimidated by the guys in black threatening them if they voted and Secretary of States such as Michigan who knew there were issues like one person voting 72 times but openly refused to do anything about it. So he got away with buying the first election and has threatened to do the same again, i.e. his move on the military being able to vote. His presidency has been made of of lies, treason, fraud – etc. If you go to the polls and write in a name or vote for someone who CANNOT win, it is exactly the same as voting FOR him. You want to save America? Pray to God for His help and VOTE for the only AMERICAN that CAN win! Capitalism (that thing where you have an idea, use it to build a business and make money) made America what is was- A strong industrial REPUBLIC and being a Christian Nation (by majority) made us strong. Trying to take over the internet is just one more way of trying to control us or stop us….. And he is an ace at signing executive orders!

      And, of course, you have no links to “reliable” and “unbiased” sources to substantiate your claims.

    As to Congress? Not just Reid… Pelosi, Frank, Boxer, Waters should also be at the top of the exit list.
    Certainly others.. but those first.
